♥~ Eco Lip Balm Review and Giveaway ~♥

Does your lips chap easily, or dry out quick? I have the best solution for you!! Eco Lip Balms! They have a huge selection of lip balms and they are all eco-friendly. Yep! You heard right! Eco-friendly lip balms. Going green is on the rise, so why not pamper your lips at the same time while protecting the world?

I got to try a few of their wonderful lip balms, Eco Lips Hemp and Eco Lips Gold from their Premium collection, Eco Lips Coconut from their Pure & Simple collection, and their Honest Kids Tropical Tango Punch co-branded collection. They have alot more collections, you can check out all the different balms at their store. Thay also have Kits and Accessories selection, great for clipping or carring you lip balm anywhere!

The Eco Lips Hemp

I really like this one, the touch of vanilla and hempseed together makes it a pleasent feeling, leaving my lips so soft!

The Eco Lips Gold

I let my mom try this one, Shes one of those people that do funny things with her mouth and tounge when shes thinking,(lol) so her lips are always chapped, She tried it and said she LOVES it, that her lips hasn't felt so smooth in a long time!

The Eco Lips Coconut

I also love this one, unlike my mom, I bite my bottom lip alot, so the coconut flavor taste really great. And its 100% edible so I dont have to worry about all those harmful pesticides.

Honest Kids Tropical Tango Punch

My girls are my little monkey-see, monkey-do's, so they love to do what mommy does, so I let them use this one. They enjoyed it and always (like every 5 minutes) wants me to apply it to their lips. I love that these are all eco-freindly and 100% safe to eat, so I dont have to worry about my one year old and two year old putting those horrible pesticides in their mouth either.

I would definitely recommend this product!


1.Organic food tastes amazing! Organic food tastes better than conventional because it’s not coated with chemical residues from pesticides and fertilizers.&nbs; Organic food, which often times is synonymous with local food, optimizes time by allowing food to grow at a natural pace in the garden or field. This coupled with a shorter farm to market distance ratio than means fresher food as well.
2.Organic food is healthy! Organic food on average contains higher Vitamin C (powerful antioxidant) levels as well as higher levels of calcium, magnesium, iron, and chromium. The bioavailability of nutrients in organic foods is at a greater level than that of conventional.
3.Organics are better for the environment! Organic production systems do not allow the use of chemical fertilizers which pollute our rivers and streams. Instead, organic production systems utilize composted manure and leguminous cover crops in rotation with cash crops to naturally feed nitrogen to the soil.
4.Organics support communities! For small farmers, organic agriculture has offered an alternative market where organically grown food commands a fair price. Workers on organic farms have reduced exposure to harsh cancer causing chemicals.
5.Organic products are free of hidden-costs! While the consumer may pay a premium at the check-out counter for organic products as opposed to conventional products, the consumer pays more for what isn’t in the product: the hidden costs of conventional include the millions of dollars tax payers pay each year for chemicals in drinking water due to pesticide practices in conventional farming.

~♥~ Growums Reviews and Giveaway ~♥~

I'm a mom turning green, its a slow but progressive start. I was thinking to myself, How could I get the children involved in going green? Since my children are small, I wanted to start off with something easy, and what better way to start them off on the road to going green, by growing a garden. Its fun, it teaches them responsibility along with learning science in the process and they can have fun with their veggies! :). I was introduced to Growums, a fun way to teach your child(ren)(and yes adults too) the fun of growing their own garden.

Growums has 6 different Growums Garden Kits. I got to review the Salad Garden Kit. I was surprised when the kit came in such a small package, and was very excited to open it. My kit contained, 8 coco pellets, 8 tags, and 4 different seeds. (lettuce (Roman), carrots(Carin), cucumbers (Duke the Cuke), and tomato's(Tomicio). I thought it was so neat that you can log onto Growums, and register your garden. They tell you how to start your kit, shows you videos and follow-up videos. They also have 3 fun games to play, Bag a Bug, Weedys Revenge, and Growums so you think you can grow?.

♥~Charm Factory Review and Giveaway CLOSED~♥

I was on the search for a great bracelet, and came across Charm Factory. Charm Factory features almost 5000 high quality, unique sterling silver bracelets, beads, charms, and more. The part I love most is that you can mix and match your charms and beads, and make it your own style.

I chose the Mom Bracelet to review, and I absolutely LOVE it!

I love the fact you can unscrew the end to add and subtract many different beads. And with all the beads and charms at Charm Factory, Your design could be one of a kind, unique and have endless possiblites. I also love the fact if you accidently put it up-side down it still spells "WOW" and thats what I think about this bracelet!WOW!

After putting it on, I just had to show it off! I showed my sister, and she loved it. She also said that would make a great present, and shes RIGHT!! It would be great for Birthdays, Anniversarys, Graduations, Christmas, Valentines, or even "just a thinking about you" gift. It would definitely will put a smile on your loved ones face.
